LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA (November 20, 2018) It is being reported by KPLC TV in Lake Charles that McNeese State University has decided not to renew the contract of head football coach Lance Guidry (shown right). The announcement was made by Bruce Hemphill, who is the Director of Athletics at McNeese.

Guidry has been with the athletic department as a coach since 2013 when he was hired as the defensive coordinator and assistant head coach; a role he held until 2015. He was elevated to head coach in 2016, and previously was employed by McNeese from 2000 to 2004 as defensive coordinator. He returned to campus in 2008 as the defensive backs coach. The 47-year-old Guidry was a four-year letterman for McNeese from 1990 to 1993. He was an all-conference defensive back for the Cowboys and part of two conference championship teams (1991, 1993). 

In his three-plus years as head coach, he posted a 22-13 record, including a 6-5 record this season. In conference play, the Cowboys were 5-4 in 2018, with the four losses coming in the final five gam3s of the season. 

Hemphill also announced a national search for Guildy's replacement will begin immediately.
